  • Strip Clubs & Credit Cards

    Went to SR this past weekend for bachelor party and got table service. The waitress said she needed a credit card and my ID when we sat down so I gave her it and collected money from the rest of my party and was just going to put charges on my card. Atbout 7 in the morning (5 hours after we left) my credit card company called me saying they were attempting to charge my card hundreds of dollars over and over again. Thankfully my bank put a hold on my card after the original charge I paid when I was there. My mistake for trusting SR with my card but definatley not cool to be doing that especially after the big tip I left the host and the waitress. Will not be going back to SR next vegas strip, even though the girls were super hot. Anyone else ever have this happen at SR or another strip club? Is there an unwritten rule never to give your CC at the strip club that I was unaware of? Was going to call them and complain but figured I would just be wasting my breath.

      Most strip clubs will make sure that you got the dough on your credit card. So they will either have crazy minumums or preauth high amounts. My golden rule with strip clubs is always have enough cash on you and dont use your credit card.

        There can be a discrepancy between what a preauthorization amount is and the amount you will be charged. I don't see why it would be that bad and why they would charge you over and over again.

        At OGs I have always been willing to go over what chargers have been made to your credit card and email guests copies of every receipt they signed.

            Don't know about OG as I have never been, so all I can talk about was my SR experience on the weekend and they clearly were just trying to steal money off my card. I only had a few drinks as I was organizing the party so I was fully aware of what was going on. I got the receipt when I left so all of the charges they tried to put through after I left the club were not legit. The girls are hot, so just go and leave your credit card at the hotel.

              I stand corrected. That is just dishonest and a horrible way to run a strip club. Trust is important in any business and in the long run it will hurt you.

                Gotta love when the Rhino makes you sign your Credit Card slip 13 times before the signature 'looks like the one on your card'.

                This is especially difficult if you are drunk when you are there, or never have the same signature twice.

                Happened to me multiple times.

                  Ahahaha this happened to me at Rhino too. I was so wasted i had to do it like 20 times, finally i told the dude take me somewhere I can see better and i was able to sign in and it looked like the one on my card.

                  Since this experience i always have good amount cash on me if I am rolling to strip club and leave my credit card at the room.

                      This happened to me again last night. Will not name the place, but ended up having to call the police to get my I.D. back. They said it didn't look like me, and it was 'fake', regardless of the fact I had a passport as well saying I was of age and who I claimed to be, as well as a debit card, business cards, and numerous employees there knew me.

                        Great advice! Anybody who is willing to drop some money @ a strip joint should def staple this advice on their forehead.

                          Also had this happen to both me and a friend at the Rhino. We each opened tabs on our own cards. What they did was put each of our totals on each card. We each only signed one receipt but when I checked my card online in my room I saw what they had done. Was not pretty but it was corrected within 24 hours.

                          Also had a similar problem at Bare with these random amounts appearing on my card balance online but not on my final tab that I signed. COme to find out the waitress either couldn't or didn't want to read the names on the credit cards so I got to pay for some other persons drinks. Also was fixed quickly once I pointed it out.
